Need a spooktacular treat for the classroom or party? I'm Lee Woodruff in the kitchen with Family Fun. Little goblins will love these cookie spooks.
You'll need a pencil, cardboard, scissors, and a butter knife, popsicle sticks, confectioner's sugar, and milk, as well as black decorating icing, and your favorite sugar cookie dough, either store bought or homemade. Now, form your cookie dough into a log, wrap in plastic, and chill for at least two hours. Meanwhile, have your child make a pattern for the cookies by drawing a ghost shape on the cardboard and cutting it out. Keep in mind, dough expands in the oven. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about an eighth of an inch thickness. Now lay the pattern on the dough and use a butter knife to cut out the ghost shapes. It takes two to make each cookie pop. Place half the cutouts two inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Lay a popsicle stick in the center of each one, leaving enough stick to hold on to once the dough expands in the oven. Top with another ghost and then pinch edges of the two layers together. Bake for ten to twelve minutes in a pre-heated 350 degree oven and place the cookies on a rack to cool. Spread on a glaze, made by mixing one cup of confectioner's sugar with two tablespoons of milk. After the glaze hardens, top off your specters by drawing on eyes and a mouth fashioned from black decorator icing. Better make a bunch because they'll disappear in a few quick bites.
